Through this blog-post, you will know more about wine tourism activities which make a winery successful. An important point is to create an offer that corresponds to you and to your wine estate philosophy. For this blog post let’s take as an example Domaine Laroche. Located in Chablis in Burgundy, France, the wine estate has developed an interesting diversified offer.
The story of Domaine Laroche
Domaine Laroche is full of history which started more than 1000 years ago. Actually, the monks from the Obédiencerie, owned by the wine estate, are the ones who built the renown of the Chablis wines. Nowadays, the team of Domaine Laroche decided to follow a philosophy which respects the environment. Especially taking into account the relation between the vines and the terroir.
About the wine tourism activities, Domaine Laroche offers an original way to explore the vineyard. In fact, visitors will enjoy a comeback in the 1950s through this tour by the vintage car Citroën 2CV. The visit continues in the wine cellars and the press dating back from the 9th to the 13th centuries.
Moreover, the winery offers the opportunity to have a picnic in the vineyard after a dive tour into the incredible story of the winery. The lunch box will enable people to taste the local food specialties paired with a Chablis wine. On top of that, visitors can rent an electric bicycle to appreciate the landscapes and have a good time in the vineyard with family or friends.
They also propose other activities like a wellness weekend which allows doing wine tourism just like enjoying a massage and a lovely dinner. As well, they organize Jazz concerts at the Obédiencerie. With its activities, Domaine Laroche gives the occasion to people to choose a specific experience they want to live.
